Beirut Residential Building by Accent Design Group | Architecture

Filed under: Architecture,blog — Tags: , , , — Sahar @ 2:13 am


It seems irregular shapes in architecture is the trend nowadays. This is a project located in Beirut on the Fouad Shehab Highway, which is a convenient and beautiful location. The best part about the location is that it overlooks downtown Beirut, and unlike most other areas in Beirut, the view can’t be blocked.

The design focuses on “stacked glass boxes” with an additional aim from its design, maximizing buildable area.


The view from this building is amazing, you can see the best of Beirut, i.e. downtown and the sea at the same time, that’s mainly due to the location of the area on a somewhat higher level. The panoramic glass blocks have shading louvers to provide privacy and shade from the excessive sunlight.

Its important the main view was one sided, as the area behind the building is still to a great extent still abandoned and with no great views whatsoever.



Location: Beirut Lebanon
Lead Architect :Elie Abs

Project team : Charbel Karam, Ahmad KHOJA, Petia RATZOV
Project Area: 11,000 sqm

  1. I want! It’s incredible the new designs that are coming up in Beirut these days. Such a welcomed change from the boring nondescript buildings that characterize the city! I hope I can afford this type of property one day! Thanks for sharing. 😀
